Our Partnership with CRC for Cell Therapy Manufacturing

The Playford Trust in partnership with the Cell Therapy Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre currently supports one scholarship for a student who is undertaking a PhD research project with the CRC.  This scholarship commenced in 2017 and will conclude in 2019.

The CRC has a focus on making cell therapies more affordable and accessible through intervention with novel materials-based technologies. The CRC aims to address the significant changes associated with cost effective scale up, ensuring rapid and seamless translation into clinical practice. It will provide new treatments and develop new materials-based manufacturing technologies for the treatment of conditions such as diabetes, chronic wounds, cardiovascular disease, and immune-mediated diseases such as graft versus host disease.

The Trust assists to provide scholarships that supplement existing Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA) or similar awards. At this time, however, there is no current offer of a scholarships associated with the CRC. Students are advised to visit the Playford Trust website for future scholarship updates.
